This large boulder has a handful of decent problems from V-easy to V6 on it's heavily lichened north face and one forgettable and gritty problem on the south face. The easier problems tend to have bad landings while the harder ones are fairly high making a pad or spotters nice to have if you plan on pitching off.

Getting There 

Located equidistant between the Hoi Polloi Boulder to the east and the problem Picture Perfect (V1) to the west and at the southern edge of a large open area.

Deuce V0- 4-  California : Joshua Tree National Park : ... : Black Lichen Boulder
Sit start at an obvious low rail and feet low under a bulge. Work the incut edges up and left to the featured arete making some balancy arete moves before clearing the bulge with your feet. Once atop the starting rail it's a romp to the top. Downclimb the juggy crack just left to descend.* This problem isn't listed in the Joshua Tree Bouldering Guide but is an obvious line with some good moves that's worth a go when in the area....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
